• D. Photons in the visible region have wave length
range from 4000 Ǻ to 7000 Ǻ (approximately).
The product of the energy in eV and the wave
length in Angstrom in the case of any photon is
12400 (very nearly).
• The energy of the 4000 Ǻ photon in electron volt
is 12400/4000 = 3.1 eV.
• The energy of the 7000 Ǻ photon in electron volt
is 12400/7000 = 1.77 eV.
• Therefore, the photon in the visible region is
given in option (d).
#22
• If you were asked to calculate the wave length of
the photon of energy 2.48 eV, you will have
• λ = 12400/2.48 = 5000 Ǻ
• [You can calculate the wave length using the
relation E = hc/λ where E is the energy in joule, h
is Planck’s constant, c is the speed of light and λ is
the wave length (in metre). In the above problem
E = 2.48×1.6×10–19 joule (on converting the
energy in eV into joule), c = 3×108 ms–1and h =
6.6×10–34 Js. But this is time consuming].

the surface is 0.5 eV. The threshold wave length
(maximum wave length) for photoelectric emission
from the surface is
(a) λ/2
(b) λ
(c) 3λ/2

E. From Einstein’s equation, we have for the two cases
hc/λ = hc/λ0 + 2 eV and
hc/2λ = hc/λ0 + 0.5 eV
where h is Planck’s constant, c is the speed of light and
λ0 is the threshold wave length. We have expressed the
kinetic energy in electron volt itself for convenience,
with the understanding that all terms are in electron
volt.
• Multiplying the second equation by 4 and subtracting
the first equation from it, we obtain
• hc/λ = 3hc/λ0 from which λ0 = 3λ.
